Thrown towel in regarding garden today.

Should do some HW, or build an ark, but decided a bit of shopping and an expedition to new Wetherspoons that has recently opened. ( To attend a temperance meeting )

Lizzie glad I'm not catering for 12. Hope you have a good time tomorrow.

Pleased that trees look okay chicky.

Fidget hope all is okay as you've got home.

I went out to lunch today too, nice, but no veg apart from potatoes. I eat more veg than meat. But there was lots of garlic, which upsets my tummy and makes me feel bloated, am garlic intolerant.

It was a lovely sunny day and next week forecast is rain. Bother. But I did manage to plant some violas before we went.

busy my wife hates garlic   our eldest son has a restaurant .and it does not smell of garlic , the over use of it is just  stupid . 

I've ordered my new greenhouse 😄
